Herpes Vaccines

The herpes simplex virus (HSV) is the infection that causes herpes. Herpes simplex’s trickiness stems from its ability to evade the body’s immune system – and circulating anti-viral drug agents – by lurking in neurons of the peripheral nervous system whose endings, or axons, are in the genital skin. As many as two out of three people permanently harbor HSV-1, and one in five have HSV-2; and though only a fraction of individual experiences observable symptoms, even those without active lesions can pass it on to others. All HSV infections are known to put people at higher risk of contracting HIV if exposed to that virus.
